    I love crime fiction,true crime,anything supernatural and a bit if sci-fi.

    My fave author Val Mcdermid who tv's Wire in the blood is taken from has just written another good one,im in the middle of Fever Of The Bone by her.

    Its not as sick as her other ones but I simply cant bide there been a book by her and not read it!!After all I own all her other ones plus hundereds of others.

    I'm reading about 4 different books right now :tongue:

    My favorite author is possibly Tom Robbins. I'm not sure on that though. It changes frequently

    Yea im a bit like that,there are so many authors I like but Val Mcdermid rocks.May I ask about Tom Robbins?What does he write?

    I sometimes end up reading numerous books at same time but only if I stick to the authors I know well as they tend to use the same characters in each book,they become like a little family in my head and I know where I am with them that way and which book im in lol.

    Ahhh yes I just had a quick scout.Cant say its my usual sort of thing but I read the blurb on Jitterbug Perfume and it sounds quite interesting.

    Bit of a far cry from the twisted and sick things I like to read about(im no monster honest)or maybe thats not true and its why everybody leaves me hmmmmmmm...

    I read mostly horror. Right now I am reading Darkness on the edge of town by Brian Keene. I don't have a fave author. As long as the stories are well written that is all I care about.

    Scott Sigler and Dean Koontz are my favorite authors. Their books are amazing. I'm reading Infected by Scott Sigler and Intensity by Dean Koontz right now :). Reading books is one of the best escapes :).

    Stephen King by far is the best IMO, that I have read anyway. He has a unique and vivid prose. He can describe daily small town life and all the emotions etc of it masterfully. He weaves ordinary characters and lives into unique situations. I just like the way his brain works. :)

    Im reading the Stand Uncut right now. Waiting for the new Dark Tower book to come out.

    I listened to infected. Sigler is definately very talented. He can write and tell story for sure.

    Dean Koontz, meh. Ive read a few of his I really liked, but once I got to reading more than five of his books, it seemed they are all very similar. He has his peeks and his lows IMO. buts its a gamble IMO

    Desperation by Stephen King is one of my all time favorite books. I don't really have a favorite author, but I have read more Jackie Collins and Stephen King books than any other authors books to date. I read Mr. Murder by Dean Koontz but I find his style of writing extremely hard to handle, not to mention some of his storylines are a little.. bizarre, to say the least.
